Teaching Interviewing Skills to Elementary Students.
Costas, Elaine Fowler
Although interviewing looks easy, it is much more complicated than it appears, and generally, students are not taught how to conduct an interview. Planning and preparation must include research about the subject of the interview and the person being interviewed. Good questions build on the question before, make the person being interviewed think, and sometimes surprise the interviewee. Questions which can be answered "yes" or "no," too personal questions, and questions with obvious answers should be avoided. Among types of interviews are: the fact interview, to obtain current information of general interest to the public; the biographical interview; the descriptive interview; and the personality or celebrity interview. Classroom applications are included. (CR)
